What this winter has taken away from us in sunlight, it’s returned in the form of sales upon sales. It feels like Black Friday was just yesterday, but Amazon is extending the merriment with an epic, just-released Holiday Gift Guide. And best of all, nestled between Revlon’s One-Step Hair Dryer and giftable sets of skincare favorites are some deals to grab—like one on a phenomenal anti-wrinkle moisturizer, Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
Elemis has a reputation for high-quality products (even Kate Hudson’s a fan), and shoppers say the Marine Cream carries the torch with a “smooth and luxurious” formula so impressive, it convinced one person to replace the day cream they were devoted to for the last 10 years. With no regrets: “The silky texture and rapid absorption without any oiliness has given my skin a glow, and has made a noticeable difference in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Friends have noticed and commented!”
Visible results are the best sign of a skincare product doing its job, and Amazon’s sale means the $128 moisturizer is now marked down to a more attainable $83. Even at full price, though, reviewers say the effects justify the tag. “[It’s] expensive, yes, but worth every penny,” one such fan said. “I am in my 50s and am always receiving compliments on my skin and lack of fine lines.” Another person reported that after using it for a decade, the cream’s “taken years off” their face and neck, lending them a dewy, youthful appearance.

It does especially great work on those hard-to-tone fine lines around their eyes, more users wrote: “Elemis hydrates like nobody’s business, and my skin shows it. It is remarkably softer.” Those consequences are thanks to a formula that draws on marine extracts like chlorella and padina pavonica algae, which the brand says reduce the look of fine lines within weeks. Algae is a hot topic in the beauty world right now: Reese Witherspoon’s go-to skincare brand, Biossance, relies on it, as does the Acure eye cream that sucks shoppers’ eye bags back into their face.
“The only product for age defiance that has ever worked for me,” concluded a penultimate reviewer of the cream. “My skin did look younger, deep lines became minimal, and the little ones vanished. I love my skin again. I ran out a few weeks ago and sad to say, my skin is looking old again. I’ll be using this forever…and I LOVE IT.” Bottom line: With consistent use, people are “shocked” by how young the cream makes customers look. Get the exceptional deal while you still can on Amazon.
